About Bethany

I am currently employed by BOCES as a special education sign language skills coach, which is sort of a hybrid between an interpreter and a teacher aide. I work one-on-one with students, assisting them in all aspects of their education. I have been involved with the Deaf community for 20 years, and I am proficient in ASL. I enjoy teaching and coaching in many subjects, and while I have the most experience with elementary and middle school students, I am both qualified and willing to tutor students of any age.

I have a very strong grasp of the English language, and an extensive vocabulary which I know how to use effectively. I have strong writing skills and the rules of grammar, punctuation, and such are second nature to me. I am also a very skilled proofreader.

I have 20 years of experience with sign language (ASL and SEE) and experience not only using sign language, but teaching it.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Sign Language

I have twenty years of experience with both ASL and SEE. My current full-time job involves assisting developmentally disabled children who use sign language, whether due to hearing loss or simply due to a preference for visual learning. I am passionate about supporting the Deaf community and willing and qualified to teach all ages, from baby signs up to adults.

Helpful with ASL Vocabulary — Bethany was very helpful in tutoring me in ASL vocabulary and easing my nerves as I began studying for my midterm. She has a lot of knowledge of American Sign Language and studying with her allowed me to definitely absorb more information than if I studied alone. She is very nice and approachable. ...
